Song Description

A son dissapoints his father by not taking on the "family job" and leaves home to persue his dreams and a career playing music. The son ends up sticking with it and is proud to have his folks come out and see him when he plays close to home.

Story Behind the Song

This song was born in Nashville at a writing session with David Worby and Bobby Carmichael.

Lyrics

Daddy couldn't find many words to say
The day I turned his old job down
After all the years of schooling
He said I need you to stick around
But I couldn't stay and do things his way
Cause I had my own dreams to follow

Mama helped me pack everything I had
In a warn out duffle bag
She said I hope you know what you're doing
Then turned and looked at dad
You?ll never make a living
With a guitar in your hand
I said I hope you?re wrong, please try and understand

That?s all that I am
That?s all that I know
That?s all that I feel down deep in my soul
So I sure hope the music makes the man
That?s all that I am

That was so many years ago
And through all the ups and downs
I stayed true to myself
And I never turned around
Now when I play close to home
My folks come out to see
The man the music?s made of me

That?s all that I am
That?s all that I know
That?s all that I feel down deep in my soul
So I sure hope the music makes the man
That?s all that I am
